What are people talking about? Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual  Awakening – What do people mean when they talk about “Spiritual Awakening”? Is it the same as Spiritual Enlightenment?

 

An Awakening occurs when an individual transcends the confused and frightened self and leaves their ego at the door, becoming aware of their higher consciousness, living from a place of unconditional love, responding from a place of inner calm and love to others and life’s circumstances.

A spiritual Awakening should not be confused with “enlightenment”, that may be defined as an intellectual understanding of higher religious principals.

As you awaken and reach higher states of consciousness, you begin to own your power. You will find that your state of wellbeing is not affected by the actions of others – rather you will have an awareness and a considered response.

Joy to the World

Joy to the World

 

 

 

 

 

 

wake up to wonder and joy within

live your joy today

open your heart to your loved ones

connect to the energy of the moment

rejoice in the innocence of the children

laugh at the antics of your neighbour’s dog

sing with the birds as dawn transforms darkness into light

 

live today as if it were your last

encourage someone who is feeling down

smile and share your inner being with another

open to receive love from those who love you

celebrate the joy of living in this moment

share your smile with a stranger

and tell that someone special in your life you love them

Balancing Life’s Challenges

Standard

What knocks you off BALANCE?

When you are stressed you are out of balance and this often manifests as resistance and reactive behaviour in your interactions with others.

When we feel that we have limited control over events in our life and things are not working for us, we try to make a correction to overcome what is causing us to be out of balance. Often those around us bare the brunt of temper and or resistance when they inquire about how we are going.

It may be there are competing needs and timelines that are clashing. This is the most common cause of stress. If you can minimise the clashes then there is less stress.

Common stressors are those deadlines – those jobs and tasks that we have been putting off because we had plenty of time before they were due… but now, when you check your diary  – it is looming fast and you wonder what happened to all that time. I am sure that many of you can relate to this.

Plan for Success

Keeping a weekly diary can see tasks buried until we arrive at that week in real time. Planning ahead and prioritising your tasks can be helped by keeping a monthly or yearly planner. It helps to see what is coming up and enables you to plan your time more effectively.

Underestimating time can also be the cause of stress. It is always in your best interest to allow more time than you think you need for a job to allow for interruptions and unexpected delays to your schedule.

Finishing a job ahead of time gives you personal satisfaction and something to celebrate It feels great. 🙂
